Metro police are investigating a string of armed robberies believed to be related at convenience stores across Nashville Wednesday night.

The first store, the Mapco Express at 801 Jefferson Street, was robbed at 10:50 p.m.

Two male, black suspects entered the store. Police said one suspect, armed with a handgun, approached the clerk, demanded cash and then both fled the scene on foot.

The next store robbed was the Circle K located at 2200 Nolensville Pike at 11:15 p.m.

Again, two male, black suspects entered the store. One of the men was armed and demanded money from the register while the other stood watch at the door.

The clerk dumped money into a black backpack and the suspects fled on foot.

The K-9 unit was called in to attempt to track the suspects, but was not successful.

Finally, the Mapco Express at 2101 Murfreesboro Pike was robbed at 11:40 p.m.

Similarly to the second robbery, the two suspects entered the store. The armed suspect committed the robbery while the other stood watch at the door.

Again, the clerk was told to place the money into a black backpack and the suspects fled on foot.

None of the clerks involved in the robberies were injured.

These duo are also suspected of committing two convenience store robberies early Tuesday, Tigermarket at 3400 West End Avenue and about an hour later, Daily’s Shell at 212 Charlotte Avenue.

The first suspect was wearing all-black clothing, white shoes, a black bandana, and carried a black pistol and black backpack.

The second suspect was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, black pants, white shoes and a red and black Ole Miss cap.

Both are estimated to be about 5 feet 10 inches tall, thin and in their late teens or early 20s.

They may have used a silver Honda sedan to get from store to store.

Anyone with information should call Metro police or Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
